Wow! Really outdone themselves today!
Just when I joked to my husband last night that at least Fyfe would be gracing the front cover today with no Nic Nat, Rioli or what Luke Shuey had for breakfast!
I walk out filled with the joys of Spring to the front gate, excitedly thinking how wonderful it will be to see the great news about Fyfe, unravel the paper and.....! What is the biggest news story on the front page??
‘Fans Vote: Free Willie!’ - you have got to be kidding me!!!
Seemingly two thirds of West Australians want Rioli allowed back in 2021! Sure Fyfe is on the front page, squeezed to the side in smaller print, but really??!!! They have got to be joking!
What an absolute disgrace!

Well not in Darwin. Loved seeing Nat on the back page of the NT news, with the headline “Skipper Unbeatable” Can’t say I’ve spotted Willie up here either.

The West is disgraceful.

If anyone still doubts that the established media in this state favour one side over the over in terms of coverage or fair representation, check out this comparison of front pages from The West and the Herald Sun the day after the Brownlow.

And for Basil to claim that the West's cover was set early and it was too late to change, well, that's just total and utter BS.

Well spotted Jooter - that is a great comparison.

What’s the market value of The West? I’m thinking about $500. A quick whip around amongst the Dockerland faithful should easily raise the $500 and we could take the thing over and right the ship.

If by “ right the ship” you mean close it down, I’m in. Where do I sign?

What an embarrassing rag our state newspaper has become.

I (naively) hoped that the Worst might at least try to move past it's routine childishness this morning. I really did expect them to at least celebrate Nat Fyfe's 2nd Brownlow as a remarkable achievement by an outstanding West Australian. Instead, they chose to continue making a very dodgy case for a drug-cheat from the NT to be shown leniency.

So it's well worth stating what's bleedin' obvious to anyone but the most one-eyed EGirls supporters:

A fake poll of just 600 WCE members opinions does not, and cannot ever, reflect the Worst's assertion that "two thirds of West Australians" want Lil' Wee-Swapping Willie to receive a pardon. In fact, after asking these choice 600 WCE members for their opinion, it's apparent that one third of those questioned actually believe that Rioli is NOT being harshly treated.

There's not even consensus among WCE supporters.

I have to admit how surprised I am at how many of you still read the WAN.
I gave up buying that rag almost 20 years ago. The next time I buy it will be when the World runs out of dunny rolls.
Life is so much more pleasant in the morning.
I found starting the day angry was very unhealthy :D

On The West's website last night, the main top story, well after Fyfe had won the Brownlow, continued to be Flying Ryan's mark of the year. I kept flicking back to The West website to see if they'd changed it to Fyfe and they eventually did, but it took far too long. Other sites - The Age, AFL etc had all switched over to Fyfe main story front pages long before The West did.

Hopefully Flyin Ryan took a leaf out of Fyfe's speech to learn how to string more than 2 words together...

This should all change when Kerry Stokes takes on the job of FFC CEO.

So priceless that they run that as a front page just hours before Willie’s latest result is announced.

C'mon, fellas. Willie took one for the club. This was all planned to take Fyfe's second Brownlow win off the front pages.

The "survey" showed that quite a few people thought an 18-month ban would be fine. And even given he'd smoked some dope in the fairly recent past, I actually think that is a reasonable penalty. At least as long as there is absolutely no evidence that he was trying to avoid detection of a drug that is actually performance-enhancing (steroids, EPO etc).

But to conduct the "survey" in the first place, and then to put it on the front page just shows how incredibly poor the Worst has become.
